The web conferencing open source software competes directly with webex and offers amazing value for the small business with the version 5 release. This is a completely browser based web conferencing system with nothing to download. According to their mission statement:
Dimdim offers a browser based web conferencing service based on the open source platform. Users can download the open source code and install it to their servers. Attendees are not required to download any software to host or attend a meeting. Dimdim allows presenters to share their desktops, show slides, as well as talk, listen, chat, and broadcast via webcam.
There is a free version for up to 20 users for the lifetime, which in itself will give startups and small businesses a leg up in affordable collaboration and communication tools. When your business starts to a scale you can upgrade to the professional versions with ease. Don’t forget to consider all free and effective tools previously discussed like Google Wave and Jing
The platform is built on opensource software and has received close to $10 Million in series A and series B funding. If you’re looking to cut travel costs or find a cheap web conferencing solution DimDim is worth a look.
